Lazydays teamed up with the University of Florida Gators on an event exclusive to Lazydays RV Tailgating Lot Pass Holders prior to the Florida Gators vs. Missouri Tigers game this past Saturday. Attendees had the opportunity to meet Rex Grossman, Florida Gators legend and former professional football player, while seeing some new RV units on display.
“The Lazydays team truly enjoyed this pre-game experience with Gators fans and RVers,” Lazydays Vice President and General Manager Ron Fleming says. “This was our second annual pre-game event and we are thrilled to be able to provide RVing fans the ultimate tailgating vehicles for their game-day activities.”
Lazydays RV is the official sponsor of the five RV Tailgating Lots surrounding the University of Florida campus. The RV tailgating lots offer a memorable game-day experience to Gators fans and their families who are RV enthusiasts.
“Lazydays offers a selection of tailgating RVs with innovative features that really enhance the tailgating experience,” Chief Marketing Officer John Lebbad says. "We’re thrilled that our partnership with the University of Florida has allowed us to bring these one-of-a-kind opportunities to our customer base and to Gators fans.”
“We’re excited to have brought this unique experience to our RV fans,” University of Florida Executive Associate Athletic Director Mike Hill says. “Since our partnership with Lazydays began last year, we were eager to bring something new to some of our most passionate Gators.”
The multi-year pact between Lazydays and the university was brokered by IMG, the university’s multimedia rights partner, and will unfold across at least two more years. This partnership emphasizes Lazydays’ commitment to the RV tailgating lifestyle. With a great selection of RVs that are perfect for the ultimate tailgating experience, the Lazydays team is always on the lookout for opportunities to celebrate outdoor activities, good times and gathering with friends and family, according to a press release.
